    • Use a spudger to lift and remove the black plastic screw cover at the top of the phone near the camera.

    • The cover is attached by adhesive, so some force may be required.

    This is actually extremely difficult to do with the plastic spudger pictured. I was forced to use the thin sharp tip on a metal spudger to get any leverage, which slightly damages the plastic.
